Azim Ahmed Chartered ALIBF
What our clients say
Azim, has recently acted as my Financial Planning Consultant with regard to the transfer of my pension funds. I have found him to be very amiable in his approach, very thorough at gathering the information, liaising with the existing provider, evaluating the options, and quickly and efficiently providing a detailed report advising of both the positives and potential negatives of the transfer. At all stages of the process Azim has provided me with clear and concise communication, and was always available to discuss and clarify issues arising, enabling me to make a confident and informed decision. Throughout the process, Azim has provided a very professional service, and I would not hesitate in recommending his services to others.
Kevin Harbron, County Durham
I was initially referred to Azim by Kevin (my financial adviser). Azim has the relevant qualifications for the transfer of final salary pensions,and provides a very good service. Transferring such type of pensions is a complex and lengths process. From the start of transferring my Hilton final salary pension Azim established a very good rapport and interacted well with me. Whenever I required assistance he was only a call away. He was always thorough and clear with his explanations . All done in a calm and professional manner and with a good sense of humour which helps when dealing with such occasional dull and complicated proceedings. Transferring my pension was one of the major decisions in my life. Thanks to Azim's dedication and attention to detail, I felt confident in believing in his advice which gave me peace of mind and helped develop a trusting relationship with him. It is hard to find someone of his calibre and qualities in the financial sector . I could sense that he is proud of his job and acts for the best interests of his customers.
